High Stile and Red Pike ridge

Distance: 12 km   |   Ascent: 700 m
Grade: Moderately easy

This walk joins an extended ridge running along the northern side of Ennerdale. Whilst the hills along the way might be smaller than Pillar to the south, they offer arguably as good views and once you've gained height you remain up high for a good deal of the walk.

Starling Dodd and Great Borne

Distance: 12 km   |   Ascent: 750 m
Grade: Moderately easy

The two summits immediatedly north of the Low Gillerthwaite Field Centre offer great views for not too much effort.

Pillar from Ennerdale

Distance: 15 km   |   Ascent: 900 m
Grade: Moderate but can be made harder.

A classic route up the valley of Ennerdale and back over Pillar, with optional extensions (including the grade 3 scramble of Pillar Rock).
